Of course not. Heathrow was a bit of a flyer
Was hoping someone with better cryptic skills than I, would have a stab at it.
But you could clarify whether it is (BR) train or tube?

Kings Cross, St Pancras

Close... I'll give it to you.

King's Cross is north of Euston on the Victoria Line, but Euston is north of King's Cross on the Northern Line.

I knew it was something like that. I was looking in the wrong places (the Claphams and Harrows).
